According to Razer, thanks to the new Nvidia Geforce RTX 30-series Laptop GPUs, the Blade 15 and the Blade Pro 17 gaming laptops will be available with new display options with higher refresh rates and higher resolutions.
Other than that, it appears that Razer did not change the design that much, which is not a surprise as both Blade 15 and Blade Pro 17 were one of the most popular in the Razer laptop lineup.
Full RTX 30-series lineup for both laptops
Both the Blade 15 and the Blade Pro 17 will be getting all options from Nvidia's latest RTX 30-series Laptop GPU lineup, up to the flagship RTX 3080 Laptop GPU.
The Blade 15 Advanced Model will be available with three display options, all featuring 15.6-inch size screen, you'll be able to choose from an FHD screen with 360Hz refresh rate, a QHD screen with 240Hz refresh rate with Nvidia G-SYNC, and the top of the offer 4K/UHD OLED screen with a wide color space but only at 60Hz refresh rate.
The situation is similar with the Blade Pro 17, although at slightly different refresh rates, so the options are: FHD at 360Hz, QHD at 165Hz, or the UHD/4K at 120Hz.
Still the smallest and thinnest most powerful laptops
"The new Razer Blade line is the best place for gamers to play the next generation of games," said Brad Wildes, Senior Vice President & General Manager of Razer Systems business unit. "Our new line features the latest graphics technology, giving gamers the most immersive experience available. With the fastest displays on the market and one of our smallest chassis ever, gamers can enjoy ultra-smooth gameplay anywhere and everywhere. Simply put: The Razer Blades are the ultimate way to play."
Razer was keen to note that the Blade 15 is still the smallest true gaming laptop, capable of driving the latest games while keeping a sleek and mobile form factor. The Blade Pro 17 is still the thinnest 17-inch gaming laptop on the market, measuring at just 395x260x19.9mm.
